In last episode....
Right - Part 6 - Copper on the metal bits (and something I should have done differently). The color tone turned out to be a little too close to the leather of the boots. You'll see it on the completed pictures later on.
Step 7 - Black on everything that doesn't have paint on it already. This is more of a "rotten fabric" thing - filling in the things that weren't other colors.
Step 8 - Reds for body parts, tongues, and a wolf grey for the hair bits.
After this is was clean up of the paint and the the almighty dip. I use MinWax Waterbased stain. I'm still working on getting the new color line right (they changed lines on me). This was American Walnut - which was too red for what I wanted really... Oh well, moving on.
Step 9 - Post Dip.
I let them sit overnight to finish drying. All done in about an hour (except for the dipping) in one night. The dipping was done the next day - something about that's when the time was available. On to part 3...
Things are rumbling along!
